This is one of the most well known and trusted recipes in Russia and Ukraine for cough in children and adults.
You will need:
Black Spanish Radish (I find it in Whole Foods near beets) Honey Traditionally people would cut the top of the radish, make a hole in it, add couple of Tbsp of honey, cover with the lid and leave for about 4-6 hours or over night in room temperature. The radish will make juice which will mix with honey.
12 yo and up take 1 Tbsp 3-5 times during the day. Children under 3 yo take 0.5 tsp 3-5 times a day Children 3-7 yo take 1 tsp 3-5 times a day There are no restrictions for pregnant women if they don't have uterine tone and threat of miscarriage. You can refill the veggie with more honey for up to 3 days in a row. Trash after that. Do not store syrup as it will lose it's qualities. If you need the remedy urgently, you can juice the radish in juicer and mix with honey in proportion 2 parts of juice to 1 part of honey. Or you can grate it, squeeze juice out and mix with honey. This is a guaranteed cure for most of coughs and works magic without any chemicals and pills from big pharma.
